Cat & Dog Boarding in Fayetteville 

We understand that it can be stressful to leave your pet when you go out of town. At Fayette Veterinary Medical Center, we want to help put your mind at ease. 

Our team works hard to ensure that your pet’s needs are met and that your animal feels safe and loved while their “parents” are away.

We have multiple large runs for housing our canine guests, as well as a separate room exclusively for our feline friends.

Your dog will have access to multiple outdoor playtimes in our fenced-in backyard, while your cat will have loving comfort and cuddles just like home.

We provide complete general boarding services for Fayetteville dogs and cats and medical boarding services for pets with conditions standard boarding centers may not be equipped to accommodate.

Pet Boarding: A Typical Day

Dog Boarding

Each morning, the dogs venture outside to our outdoor yard for fresh air before breakfast. While they are outside, their kennels are cleaned, disinfected, and stocked with fresh bedding.

Depending on their physical capacity and ability, your dog will have access to multiple playtimes outdoors in our fenced backyard. 

Your dog will also have supervision throughout their stay with us – both during walks and while they rest.

In the evening, dinner is served, and then we have one last exercise break before bedtime.

Cat Boarding

Your cat will be fed according to your specifications and their requirements, to ensure their routine is the same as it is at home.

We provide daily one-on-one interaction with kitties (if they want it!) including play, snuggles, and pets. Litter boxes are checked, cleaned and disinfected periodically throughout the day.

Additionally, we refresh linens and clean your kitty's room daily. Our cat boarding area is separated from the dog area to ensure your kitty feels relaxed and safe while they stay with us.

For All Pets Staying With Us

Your pet's boarding visit includes an examination by a highly trained technician, monitoring throughout their visit by trained veterinary staff, flea treatment at check-in and check-out, food, water and bedding.

    Step 2: Book a trial stay

However, immediate care will be provided without notification if necessary. An examination fee will not be charged. However, diagnostics, medications, and treatment fees will be charged when appropriate. If a patient becomes ill within 5 days of leaving our facility, we will provide an examination at no charge.

However, these items can be "misplaced" or may be returned in lesser condition than how they arrived. Please do not leave any items that cannot be easily replaced.
